The logic behind Ezra Loau's desire to return to Schools Spectacular is a simple one.

"The reason I come back every year is because each year gets better and better, and I just don't want to miss out," Ezra said.

Ezra and sister Olina are among 57 students who will take to the stage as featured performers at the world's largest amateur variety act as in November.

The Bossley Park High School students will form part of a cast of more than 5500 drawn from public schools across NSW for this year's Schools Spectacular which carries the theme of stars.

This will be Ezra's fourth time in Australia's longest-running variety show. It will be Olina's sixth time.

Olina, 16 of Greenfield Park stole the show at last year's School Spectacular when dressed in an outfit that spanned the entire stage floor, belted out a stirring rendition of Never Enough from The Greatest Showman while being raised about Qudos Bank Arena.

It's the same song that saw her receive national praise on Australia's Got Talent. She will compete in the final of the Channel Seven show after picking up Jessica Mauboy's golden buzzer in the first semi-final for her performance of Beyonce's Listen.

Olina said last year's School Spec performance was "the most fun" she has ever had on stage.

"I think it's very hard to top the flying in the air thing, but I think production-wise it will be bigger and better," Olina said.

Ezra and Olina will spend the coming months dedicated to rehearsals to create a world-class performance.

Creative Director Sonja Sjolander said: "Our students love to be a part of Schools Spectacular and audiences just love their performances. It's a joy to see their faces light up with pride and achievement as they perform."

Four performances of the Schools Spectacular will be staged at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney on Friday, November 22 (11am, 7.30pm) and Saturday, 23 November (1pm, 7.30pm).
